I was born and raised in a small, former coal-mining town in Northern-Hungary. After my highschool graduation, I was accepted to the University of Theatre and Film Arts, Budapest straight away. I studied stage directing with musical theatre specialization for five years. In 2019, ours was the last finishing class before Covid and before the political occupation and demolition of our University SZFE. From 2020, I am a resident director and member of the artistic direction team of Katona József Theatre, Budapest. I have started by directing mostly classical plays in new interpretations, but since 2020 I have been working only on own adaptations or brand new projects. I am also the writer or co-writer of my new productions. Music in theatre and musical theatre are the most significant fields of my works.
